what are side effects of inteferon shots
Sep 3, 2006

I would like to know if pegyinterferon shots for hepatitis C causes texticular cancer. My Husband had hepatitis C at 20 yrs. of age. At 55 He was treated with interferon shots for 1 yr. to improve his liver function. 1 yr later he was diagnoised with testicular lymphoma cancer. My question is will/can interferon cause cancer in the testes?

thank you, Very concerned.

Response from Dr. McGovern

I am not aware of any reports of this. My best wishes for the recovery of your husband.
